mbeze Once Bitten Deodorette Review

I've done a couple of reviews on deodorants already and before trying those, I had purchased this one from  I had high hopes, my high hopes were shattered.

Claim: Deodorant has never been so chic! These fun and flaunty Deodorettes fit in any clutch, purse, bag, or even your pocket. With a cosmetic look versus a deodorant stick, you can freshen up in style whenever and wherever! Cruelty-free.  Once Bitten is an empowering, uplifting scent of apple blossom, vanilla, and a twist of lime that will give you an extra bite back!

It really is super chic and tres adorable!  It fits anywhere because it's so small.  It smells soooooooooo delicious, NOM NOM NOM.  I want to eat it, I didn't..and I won't...but that was for dramatic explanation of how much I enjoy the scent.  The performance is total...and utter...crapola.  It doesn't feel like it evenly distributes product, it starts clumping on the stick itself almost like you're pulling fuzzy or wool material), it leaves a white film and clumps under my arms, scent doesn't last, feels wet and it's just horrible.  The concept of this product is great and I really wish that it had worked for me.  It's not worth the money and I won't be repurchasing ever.

Retails for approx. $10 CAN for 9g

  1. I tried the Ife Deodorette, a different scent from the same line. I love it. It works so much better than the Aubrey Organics E plus High C that I've been using for years, especially since the old brand has changed their formula and added citrus, which turns on me. The Ife lasts and lasts and smells great. One caveat, the second time I used it, the stick broke off and stayed in the lid, so I had to scoop it out with a knife and smush it back down into the applicator. Also, it's very expensive for how little you get and how few applications. Nevertheless, I'll probably keep buying it because it works for me.

    1. Thrilled to get some feedback on this little deodorant. I'm glad that it worked for you, but you're so right when you say it's expensive for how little product you get. What matters most is that it works though because smelling like BO is not attractive lol. Xo!


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
